Dan Majerle, a three-time NBA All-Star in the 1990s with the Phoenix Suns, spent seven seasons as the head coach at Grand Canyon. The Antelopes finished in the top three of the WAC standings in each of his first six seasons but stumbled this season to a 13-17 record and a fifth-place tie in the conference.
“We have made the decision to move in a new direction with our men’s basketball program,” school president Brian Mueller said. “We wish Coach Majerle the best of luck in his future endeavors.”
“GCU has become a premier mid-major basketball destination with its resources, facilities, and student and community support,” said Jerry Colangelo, a strategic advisor for the school. “We look forward to the future of the program under the direction of the new head coach.”
